Promise me that you will allow yourself to fall so freely and fiercely you won't know which way is up. Promise me you will allow yourself to love loudly, even without the promise of love in return. Promise me you will allow yourself to want a big, brave, brilliant life, and begin to believe you are worthy of receiving it.
Because miracles happen when you refuse to live your life ruled by fear, when you stop playing it cool, when you say "f*%k it, I'm going in!"...you always win. Even when you get rejected, even when you fail and fail hard—even then—you win.
Yesterday I spent going out on a date with my love. Today, I showed myself some love. I had been jonesing for a good waffle for a while, so instead of waiting and trying to organize brunch plans with others I just took myself out for brunch.
As part of a 5 day Self-love challenge, participants are required to take themselves out on a date this week and make a public proclamation of self-love.
I LOVE that I have worked so hard to be comfortable in my own skin, and that I have no problem announcing that to anyone who will listen.
It's a small feat, but historically I would have been way too self conscious to eat at a restaurant alone, or go to a movie alone. I'd get obsessed wondering what people would think, and I would often bring work or text books with me, not to actually work or read but so that I looked like a busy student or entrepreneur. I thought it made me look better to others. .
As I am gaining an appreciation of and fondness for myself, being alone in my own company isn't scary anymore. In fact, it gets easier and more enjoyable the more I do it. After all, what's the sense in denying myself something I enjoy simply because there's nobody else available to enjoy it with me. In that case, everybody loses!
You have to live a few years of your life uncomfortable when you’re an entrepreneur
You find yourself becoming successful WHEN you’re in an uncomfortable situation ......
And health are crucial
Spend the time improving all of those situations when you’re on your mission , let your why drive you 🌊
How often do we avoid reaching our potential because we decide to do nothing? because we’re afraid of failure? because we’re afraid of being labeled as a failure, even?
I remember something someone told me and it’s always stuck with me. Right before I gave up a scholarship to play soccer, I was MISERABLE. I wasn’t sure I could continue on. I was at my lowest. “What do you hope for?” she asked me.... I didn’t really no exactly what I hoped for, but I knew I wanted to be happy and do something valuable.. or at least I wanted to feel not bad.. 🤣 “Stop letting your fears dictate your decisions.” It makes sense right? If you want to be happy and live a good life, why would you focus on your fears? Why focus on the things you want to avoid? The reality is, the things you are afraid of are obstacles. But you may find that when you focus on running the race ... you never had to run over the mountains in front of you... you could just run around them.
